I liked last night's RAW too, but I am left with some lingering questions. If Austin is now going to feud with the bigger, badder NWO--and Kane will help him when he returns--who is Hogan going to feud with? Undertaker? It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Did anyone get the feeling after Brock Lesnar's match that they are setting him up as a monster to feed to Hogan for a typical old-school Hogan victory? That was kind of the feeling I got but I don't know if I'm alone.
Plus, who will Hogan deal with on Smackdown? And can he have a title defense against, say, Jericho before the next PPV? I say set up a quick match with him, have Hogan shut Jericho up, and then have Lesnar come out and do a typical "destroy Hogan" deal on the next RAW. Any thoughts?

Why doesn't taker and hogan make sense? Undertaker won the match so he is the legit #1 contender. They can feud up to the ppv. If the federation needs to make it a 3 or 4 way dance then so be it. But i see nothing wrong at the moment for a feud between them two.
I am the JOBBER TO THE STARS. You better remember that.
Cardinals 9W 10L (as of 4-21) 4 losses in a row against the brewers? what the hell?
If anything, I was thinking they would feed Hogan to Lesnar. Kind of a reverse face/heel dynamic to Goldberg v Hogan from a few years back. I really don't think Lesnar is ready for this yet, but it would be interesting if they did it...
Jesus, Lesnar has only wrestled TWO matches... against the Hardyz... LOL. The guy is impressive but I think everybody getting a little ahead of themselves.
You know youre old when you try to convince some kid that was born in the freakin 80's that Samus Aran could whip Lara Croft's cave dwelling ass. Honestly, has there ever been a cooler weapon in the history of video games than the Screw Attack?
I would have to agree, and Hogan's not 45 anymore, they can't just have him squash the WWF's future. Sure, the slow build to the imminent big Hogan win over Lesnar looks very familiar, but I pray the WWF is not that stupid.
I still have an uneasy feeling I need to just enjoy Lesnar while he is in this situation. In a year or so, I fear him being named the 19th member of the nWo.
Lesnar is big, but other than that he's squashed guys that can bump like crazy and make him look good. He's been in the WWF two months now. The WWF is already hotshotting at a fast enough pace thank you.
I kind of agree with TimDrake - but not yet. Maybe keep Brock on this pace of completely annihilating the midcard(but no pinfalls. This 'ref stops the match' thing keeps him much more interesting.) Making him King of the Ring wouldn't be a bad idea either... Heyman carrying his cape and scepter makes me snicker even now.
While this is going on, Hogan loses the belt to Taker or another member of the RAW crew and ends up back on Mondays. Night after KOTR, Heyman cuts a promo about how Brock is still the Next Big Thing, and nobody in the federation can stop him, blah blah blah... all this promps Flair to tell Hogan to teach this young guy a lesson. Lead through some tag team matches where Brock destroys Hogan's partner but doesn't really get to put his hands on Hulk. Also, giving Hogan a win over him under screwjob circumstances. Hogan becomes the savior of the midcarders who've been tossed around by Brock the last few months, which all leads up to...
Fully Loaded. Hogan comes to the ring flanked by the Spike Dudleys and Crash Hollies and the like, maybe give him back "Real American" for the match. And despite all of that, Brock still beats him in about 10 minutes after either kicking out of the legdrop or catching the big boot or something like that. Losing to Brock shows Hogan he doesn't have what it takes anymore and would start his farewell tour to lead to Hogan/Vince somewhere down the line, and Brock gets the Goldberg-style rub off the win and gets prepped for a world title run around No Mercy/Survivor Series.
Would this happen? Nah, probably not. Would it draw? Who knows... but it's something to do with Brock to keep him as the unstoppable monster they've built him as so far.
This episode aired 24 hours late due to Ducks hockey, but was online on time! If you want to wait until Wednesday night, I'll probably update this post with a Vimeo then. (I certainly won't blame you if you don't.)
